Garrigos Socrates
Exemplary Physician-Specialist in Adult MedicineSince 1998, it’s been an honor, privilege, and pleasure to experience the compassionate, empathetic, exclusive, and individualized care Dr. Garrigos renders to all his patients. In addition, his prolific and eloquent English and Spanish articulations augment his talent to empower his patients’ knowledge base of preventive, proactive measures to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle, essential factors necessary to achieve optimum function with minimal to no discomfort.Furthermore, every patient receives a copy of “Summary of Plan” discussed inclusive of: labs results, prescriptions, future orders/advisements, signs and/or symptoms warranting notification to Dr, Garrigos and return appointment. I sincerely commend Dr. Garrigos on his extraordinarily unique technique utilized to provide documentation of: treatments agreed upon; and discussion of pertinent patient education essential for patient compliance and shorten convalescence.

I had recently moved to the Rio Grand Valley from Alabama and was searching for a good pediatrician for my newborn, my toddler and 11 year old. My search led me to Dr. Douglas. She is very educated in newborn care and I was extremely pleased with her skills. She took the time to talk to my older children and was very caring. She listened to my concerns and addressed them all. She is not one of these doctors that gives out antibiotics for every little thing, causing more problems for children. She finds the cause and treats it accordingly. AKC has an in house lab and well child area. They even have a nursing mothers room! I never had to wait long for my appointment. The office girls are also very helpful and kind. Dr.Douglas is very knowledgeable and I highly recommend her for children of all ages. I just wish I did not have to move back to Alabama and leave her. This Doctor is a keeper!!

I took my boyfriend in for severe pain on his side & weakness. He had been drinking @ home but he was immediately judged only on that which was not the initial cause of his pain. The triage nurse whose name I don't know was extremely rude. He only saw him as bring drunk & it really frustrated me to the point where I almost snapped & told him off but I didn't. Then after he was in a room, his nurse was not very friendly & treated him the same, as a drunk which he is not. However after finding out he was diabetic, he was a little nicer but not much. I would like to only Thank the doctor who was extremely nice & listened to what we had to say about why I brought him in. If Dr. Greene had not been so nice I probably would never go here again if needed in the future. I still might not but would consider it. Thank Dr. Greene!!

As a mother of 2 beautiful girls, I always try to provide the best for them and have been coming here since 1998 because the doctors at AKC ARE the best. They give special attention to each patient yet still don't keep me waiting for long. My kids have been seen by all 3 providers, but I especially love the way Deb de la Rosa advises my teenage girls. I would recommend this to everyone I know for the best pediatric service there is in South Texas.

Tips & Advices
Lupus is similar to rheumatoid arthritis in that it is caused by the immune system attacking healthy tissues. But lupus is distinguished by its much broader pattern of symptoms that can affect multiple organs. Lupus presents in so many different ways that it is often mistaken for other diseases. It is thought to be triggered by a combination of genetic and environmental factors, but is not contagious. There is no known cure for lupus, but it can be managed through a combination of drugs and dietary changes.
Tendonitis is inflammation of a tendon, which are the tissues that connect muscles to bone. This can be acute or chronic in nature and often results from overuse, and is one of the most common injuries seen in athletes. Tendonitis often resolves on its own after rest and over-the-counter pain medication, but severe or frequent occurrence might require physical therapy, orthotics and lifestyle modifications.
Fibromyalgia is a condition characterized by chronic pain and discomfort throughout the body, as well as a heightened sensitivity to pain. There are many other conditions that may cause these symptoms, but fibromyalgia is unique in that the symptoms have no apparent physical cause. Fibromyalgia is frequently seen in people who also suffer from depression, anxiety or post-traumatic stress disorder. Treatments might involve treating these primary conditions, taking medications, or certain lifestyle changes.
Osteoporosis describes the tendency for bones to become increasingly weak with age in some people. This weakness increases the chance of suffering a fracture, and may also cause chronic pain and immobility. People of European or Asian descent are at a higher risk of developing osteoporosis, as are women. Osteoporosis is difficult to treat once it is diagnosed, but it can be prevented by eating a healthy diet and taking certain dietary supplements for those who are at greater risk.
Rheumatoid arthritis is where  the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks joint tissue. As a result, joints become swollen and increasingly painful, making movement difficult or impossible. It is not known what exactly causes rheumatoid arthritis, but it is believed to be related to both genetic and environmental factors. Treatment involves special medications as well as surgery.
